The debate about the relationship between international and community law usually centres on the question of which of these two 'belongs' to the other, and how 'special' community legal order is in relation to international law. In this volume, a distinguished group of Finnish and British academics and practitioners break new ground by, instead of becoming mired in these questions, clearly examining the international law aspects of the activities of the Community and the Union. In doing so, they have elucidated points of connection and possible points of conflict. The result is a thought-provoking collection of essays which examines community law through the conceptual grid of international law, and thus enriches our understanding of the workings of both.

A part of Sweden until 1809, Finland then became a Grand Duchy of the Russian Empire until it declared its independence on December 6, 1917. From these humble beginnings, Finland has emerged as an important player in the European Union (Finland holds the presidency of the EU in the latter half of 2006) and as a useful contact with the newly independent Baltic States, as well as Russia. The second edition of the Historical Dictionary of Finland not only updates the previous edition but expands its coverage. Through a chronology, a list of acronyms and abbreviations, an introductory essay, appendixes, a bibliography, and hundreds of cross-referenced dictionary entries covering the more important persons, places, events, institutions, geographic locations, and significant aspects of politics, economy, society, and culture, an accurate historical picture of this country is revealed.

He also examines how this northern expansion has led the EU to reflect on relations with Russia and its north-western regions. This unique study includes: a fresh approach to the under-theorized field of EU foreign policy key empirical material, including hundreds of documents, interviews and field experiments in-depth case studies of relations between the EU, Nordic states, Baltic states and Russia with its north-western regions. This is essential reading for all students of European politics, Russian studies and international relations.

  • Publisher: Routledge



The European Union and the Nordic Countries provides an authoritative assessment of the intricate relationship between the EU and the Nordic countries. The team of authors includes academics from the five main Nordic countries. The authors explore the ramification of wider Nordic EU membership for particular subject areas, such as economic and monetary union, social and environmental policy, agriculture, fisheries and foreign and security affairs. The authors argue that the impact of two more Nordic countries becoming EU members will prove positive. However, despite further Nordic accessions seeming inevitable, this will not be easy and will require major changes in public opinion in Norway and Iceland.
